Spring Vacation – Beauvoir in Biloxi


On our way back home from our New Orleans-Cruise to Cozumel trip, we had enough time to stop by Biloxi, Mississippi to once again tour Beauvoir, the home of Jefferson Davis, who was a United States Senator and Congressman, a United States Secretary of War, the husband of Sarah Knox Taylor (who was the daughter of President Zachary Taylor), and Confederal President. He didn’t own this house that faces the Gulf of Mexico, but rented it during his retirement years.  It’s one of my favorite places in Mississippi for its serenity and history:

Tomb of the Confederal Unknown Soldier:

After this stopover, our trip home continued. We’re almost home—

I hope you enjoyed this little getaway!  I tried to capture the most interesting points of interest on the fly here. See you on the flip side—

Hi, and welcome to my blog. I am a published writer, poet, photographer, freelance editor, artist, and career analyst. Growing up in a bilingual family helped me foster my love of languages. I hold a Bachelor of Arts degree in History and Political Science, a Bachelor of Arts degree in English, and Master of Arts in History. My short stories, poetry, and photographs have been published in the Emerald Coast Review (18th and 19th editions), newspapers, and in many other publications. I enjoy Pre-Code films, photography, music, travelling, history, reading, and living each day to the fullest in The Oasis. My publications include Engaged (an anthology of my poems), The Crowd of Turin, God of the Sea: A Short Book of Poetry by the Seashore, Grapes Suzette and Other Poetic Epicurean Delights, Gallery Night, Indigo Fantasy, The Green Gloves, Puppy Love, Supreme Theater, and others. I am currently working on an anthology of my short stories, including a roman à clef tale, and am in collaboration with another artist in writing a novel. My books are available through Amazon. Check them out. Buy them. Read them. Send me your thoughts. I look forward to hearing from you.

  2. This is one place of historic relevancy to The Confederacy that probably won’t be torn down by the snowflakes any time soon. Thank God……….
